IM Sweden 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Last year, the first edition of the Kalmar race as an Ironman saw the fastest adjustment I ever calculated for a race (28:44). This year, the numbers were a bit more normal (adjustment of 12:40), pretty much comparable to what we saw this year for IM Germany. The swim and run were similar to last year, and the main difference was the bike adjustment – either the conditions were very favorable last year or this year’s course was more accurate.

Male Race Results

Pedro Gomes had a great race and performed better than his ratings in all disciplines:

Female Race Results

On the female side, Jodie Swallow managed to break her string of 2nd place finishes by biking a bit slower than she did in South Africa and Germany and then holding strong on the run (posting the best splits in each of the legs, and even leading the men’s race after the swim):

    For your info the bike course was almost 5km longer this year 🙂 For being Kalmar/Oland the windcondition was normal(windy!!), instead of totally calm like last year. Swim was rough as well, last year almost gave a feeling like swimming in a pool.
